Allow PowerPC to skip the full memory barrier in switch_mm(), and
only issue the barrier when scheduling into a task belonging to a
process that has registered to use expedited private.

Threads targeting the same VM but which belong to different thread
groups is a tricky case. It has a few consequences:

It turns out that we cannot rely on get_nr_threads(p) to count the
number of threads using a VM. We can use
(atomic_read(&mm->mm_users) == 1 && get_nr_threads(p) == 1)
instead to skip the synchronize_sched() for cases where the VM only has
a single user, and that user only has a single thread.

It also turns out that we cannot use for_each_thread() to set
thread flags in all threads using a VM, as it only iterates on the
thread group.

Therefore, test the membarrier state variable directly rather than
relying on thread flags. This means
membarrier_register_private_expedited() needs to set the
MEMBARRIER_STATE_PRIVATE_EXPEDITED flag, issue synchronize_sched(), and
only then set MEMBARRIER_STATE_PRIVATE_EXPEDITED_READY which allows
private expedited membarrier commands to succeed.
membarrier_arch_switch_mm() now tests for the
MEMBARRIER_STATE_PRIVATE_EXPEDITED flag.

Changes since v1:
- Use test_ti_thread_flag(next, ...) instead of test_thread_flag() in
  powerpc membarrier_arch_sched_in(), given that we want to specifically
  check the next thread state.
- Add missing ARCH_HAS_MEMBARRIER_HOOKS in Kconfig.
- Use task_thread_info() to pass thread_info from task to
  *_ti_thread_flag().

Changes since v2:
- Move membarrier_arch_sched_in() call to finish_task_switch().
- Check for NULL t->mm in membarrier_arch_fork().
- Use membarrier_sched_in() in generic code, which invokes the
  arch-specific membarrier_arch_sched_in(). This fixes allnoconfig
  build on PowerPC.
- Move asm/membarrier.h include under CONFIG_MEMBARRIER, fixing
  allnoconfig build on PowerPC.
- Build and runtime tested on PowerPC.

Changes since v3:
- Simply rely on copy_mm() to copy the membarrier_private_expedited mm
  field on fork.
- powerpc: test thread flag instead of reading
  membarrier_private_expedited in membarrier_arch_fork().
- powerpc: skip memory barrier in membarrier_arch_sched_in() if coming
  from kernel thread, since mmdrop() implies a full barrier.
- Set membarrier_private_expedited to 1 only after arch registration
  code, thus eliminating a race where concurrent commands could succeed
  when they should fail if issued concurrently with process
  registration.
- Use READ_ONCE() for membarrier_private_expedited field access in
  membarrier_private_expedited. Matches WRITE_ONCE() performed in
  process registration.

Changes since v4:
- Move powerpc hook from sched_in() to switch_mm(), based on feedback
  from Nicholas Piggin.

Changes since v5:
- Rebase on v4.14-rc6.
- Fold "Fix: membarrier: Handle CLONE_VM + !CLONE_THREAD correctly on
  powerpc (v2)"

Changes since v6:
- Rename MEMBARRIER_STATE_SWITCH_MM to MEMBARRIER_STATE_PRIVATE_EXPEDITED.
